Today is going to be a pretty slow day, though there is plenty to talk about and plenty that will be talked about. The veto ceremony is tomorrow, so the replacement nomination plan will be discussed, along with talks on which person they want to send out this week. There is already talk about sabotaging a certain houseguest’s plan, so we’re in for a good week.
1:10 PM BBT: Michelle asked Nicole if she knew who Paul was planning on putting up as a pawn. Nicole said that she didn’t. Michelle told her that from what she’s hearing, Paul isn’t wanting to do the backdoor that Paulie is pushing for.
2:30 PM BBT: Victor told Bridgette that as far as he knew, she had the votes, so she shouldn’t have anything to worry about. Bridgette told him to let her know if there is anything that she needed to do.
3:15 PM BBT: Paul told James that Da’Vonne will be the replacement nominee since that is what the house wants, but said that it’s his objective to send Bridgette home still. Paul told him that he feels like Bridgette is a bigger threat because she is a better competitor. James told Paul that he’s close with Da’Vonne and can confirm that she has never brought his name up to him. James threw out the idea that Bridgette would go home if he put up anyone other than Da’Vonne, but Paul told him that he thinks they’ll still have the numbers with Da’Vonne up. Paul explained that Da’Vonne volunteered to go up, so he’s wanting to put up someone who won’t freak out.
3:30 PM BBT: Paulie told Corey and Nicole that Zakiyah was saying that she wants Paul out soon because he could win the game if they took him too far. Nicole asked if Da’Vonne is the one who is going up, to which Paulie confirmed that she was. Nicole told Paulie that Zakiyah gave Paul a hug and a kiss when he said was thinking about putting up Natalie instead of Da’Vonne. Paulie told them that he’s thinking about taking Zakiyah out next, that he knows exactly what she is doing and the only information he gives her is misinformation.
3:45 PM BBT: Paul asked James and Paulie if they’re confident that they’ll have the votes to evict Da’Vonne. Paulie told him that the only people who would vote to keep Day would be Michelle and Zakiyah. Paul told Paulie that they have to start thinking about girls vs guys cause once the guys start to outweigh the girls, they’re naturally going to try to stick together. Paulie explained to him that Da’Vonne is the only one who could get an alliance like that together, not Bridgette. Paul told him that they just have to keep putting the girls up and they’ll control the votes. James told Paul and Paulie that he doesn’t mind if Natalie gets taken out, but said that he doesn’t think it would be best to get out first. Paul agreed, saying that Natalie isn’t a threat. Paul told them that he knows exactly what he’ll say to Da’Vonne when he puts her up.
Paulie told Paul about how Zakiyah was saying that he went from being Jozea’s minion to everyone in their alliance liking him. Paulie added that Zakiyah told him that she knows that him and Paul are close, but needed to keep in mind that he’d win if he made final two.
4:10 PM BBT: Paul told Victor that he plans on telling Da’Vonne today that he’s thinking about putting her up, but said that he just doesn’t want to have to break a tie. Victor said he wouldn’t since they’ll have his, Paulie, Corey, Nicole, and James’ vote.
4:15 PM BBT: James told Natalie that she doesn’t have anything to worry about because nobody is seeing her as a threat. James added that Natalie won’t be the replacement nominee, that there is a different plan in the works.
4:15 PM BBT: Paul told Da’Vonne that he needs someone to go up who isn’t going to freak out. Da’Vonne suggested Natalie, but Paul told her that Natalie would freak out. Paul told her that he needs to put up someone he can trust to not spread paranoia to ensure that Bridgette goes home. Paul told Da’Vonne that he didn’t want to put her in that situation, but said that he knows Day trusts him. Da’Vonne suggested Victor, but Paul shut it down again, saying that Victor freaks out just at the thought of going up. Da’Vonne asked why not put up someone who hasn’t been up, to which Paul told her that they’d freak out for sure.
Da’Vonne told Paul that she doesn’t want to go up because she doesn’t trust Corey or Nicole. Paul told her that Corey and Nicole want to keep her over Bridgette because Bridgette is spreading paranoia about them because of Frank. Paul asked Da’Vonne to help him finish his job and send Bridgette home because he said he’s confident that whoever sits next to Bridgette will be completely safe. Da’Vonne told Paul that she’s a pretty big target and said that Bridgette could play the sympathy card. Paul told Day that she’s not a threat because she hasn’t won anything. Paul told her that he hasn’t heard her name come up once in the past three weeks other than Frank and Bridgette. Da’Vonne told Paul that if he’s going to put her up, at least tell her before tomorrow. Paul said he would.
4:40 PM BBT: Da’Vonne told Zakiyah that the more Paul talked to her, the more he was basically saying that he’s going to put her up and that she just needs to trust him. Da’Vonne began to cry, saying that it seems like nobody cares how she feels while she’s on the block while Paul kept making up excuses for how everyone else would react. Zakiyah tells Da’Vonne that Paul has talked about nothing other than getting Bridgette out to her, so she said that she’ll feel some type of way if Paul went back on that by getting Day out.
4:40 PM BBT: Paul told Bridgette that she doesn’t have anything to worry about, that the votes are secure and Da’Vonne will be going home. Paul told her that Da’Vonne instantly tried throwing Zakiyah under the bus to get her best friend nominated. Bridgette told Paul that she wants to pick off the girls’ side of the house one by one.
4:55 PM BBT: Da’Vonne asked Natalie who she would vote for if she was on the block next to Bridgette. Natalie said that it would be tricky since she was friends with Bridgette for so long, but said that she’d vote for Day to stay if she wanted her to since she talks more game with Da’Vonne than she does Bridgette. Da’Vonne told her that she wouldn’t be mad at her for voting her out because she knows that Bridgette is her friend. Da’Vonne added that the one thing she can tell Natalie for sure is that she isn’t going up as the replacement nominee, so Natalie can breathe.
5:05 PM BBT: Da’Vonne told Zakiyah that she doesn’t think she’ll have Natalie’s vote since Natalie kept saying that she was Bridgette’s friend first.
5:15 PM BBT: Da’Vonne told James that she might be going up, which let her know where she stood in the house. Da’Vonne told him that Paul ruled out all the other people cause they’d freak out the same way she would, but said that she’s still being considered though.
5:25 PM BBT: Zakiyah told James that getting Da’Vonne out isn’t good for her game cause she knows that Day isn’t after her, James, Michelle, Natalie, or even Paulie or Paul. Zakiyah told him that she is going to let Paulie know that she can’t vote Da’Vonne out.
5:55 PM BBT: James told Paul about Da’Vonne coming downstairs to tell him and Zakiyah about her and Paul’s conversation upstairs. James explained that Da’Vonne said Paul was coming up with excuses for why everyone else couldn’t go up but was just fine with putting her up. Paul told James that he actually wants Bridgette to go home, but can’t control how people choose to vote. Paul asked how Natalie would vote, to which James told him that she’d likely vote to keep Bridgette. James told Paulie that Zakiyah said that it’s not good for her game for Da’Vonne to go since she’s not coming after her, James, Paul, or Paulie. James told him that Da’Vonne is saying that she’ll go home if she goes up. Paul told him that she’s only saying that in hopes that she doesn’t get put up. Paul then told James about the final four that Da’Vonne suggested yesterday that only included Paul, Paulie, Da’Vonne, and Zakiyah.
6:00 PM BBT: Zakiyah told Paulie that Da’Vonne was indirectly told by Paul that she’s going up, then afterwards came downstairs to tell her about it. Zakiyah explained to Paulie that she still cares for Da’Vonne even though Day screwed her over in the same way that Paulie still cared for Frank after he screwed Paulie over. Zakiyah told Paulie that if Da’Vonne is going to go, they should at least do the same that they did with Frank and tell her about it. Paulie said he would. Zakiyah asked if Bridgette were to stay, would she come after her, to which Paulie told her that Bridgette wouldn’t.
6:30 PM BBT: Da’Vonne told Paulie that this game is about trust and it’s hard to trust someone when it feels like everyone’s feelings but hers are taken into consideration. Da’Vonne explained that him, Paul, Zakiyah, Michelle, and James are all she has in the game. Da’Vonne added that it makes her feel like she’s at the bottom of the totem pole in their group. Da’Vonne asked why she’s worth the potential sacrifice if the votes flip. Paulie told her that he knows where she is coming from because he was saying the same thing to Nicole. Da’Vonne told Paulie that on a personal level, when’s she’s going to be taken out, she’d like to know.
Da’Vonne told Paulie that it’s almost like everyone has forgotten that Corey was in the four person alliance with Nicole, Bridgette and Frank too. Da’Vonne added that she agrees with Zakiyah when she said that she doesn’t understand why nobody is wanting to touch Natalie, to which Da’Vonne answered her own question, saying that Paul doesn’t want to touch Nicole because of Corey and doesn’t want to touch Natalie because of James. Da’Vonne tell commented that she wish she had a man so that she would be untouchable too. Da’Vonne asked Paulie to keep this conversation between them because she doesn’t want Paul thinking she doesn’t trust him, when she actually does.
7:10 PM BBT: Da’Vonne told James that she doesn’t know what they’re going to do. James told her that if it comes down to it, they’re going to fight to rally votes to save her.
7:20 PM BBT: Paulie told Paul that he heard Da’Vonne came to talk to him about going up. Paul said that Da’Vonne is being a f-ck hole about going up. Paul added that Da’Vonne just keeps showing her cards to him and it just shows that she’s a sh-thead that needs to go home.
7:40 PM BBT: Nicole questioned if Da’Vonne knows that she’s going home. Paul told Nicole that he told her. Corey, Nicole, and Paul all agree that Da’Vonne looks at each of them like she hates them.
8:10 PM BBT: Corey told the people at home that he trusts Paulie, Nicole, Paul, and Michelle the most. He said that they have a good little squad going.
8:15 PM BBT: Paul and Paulie started updating each other about other conversations they had with people. Paul told Paulie that Zakiyah has been acting sketchy recently by trying to peer into his conversations with people. Paulie told him that he had a talk with Da’Vonne and she said that she wanted to be told if she was going home. Paul told him that he rather nobody tells her. Paul told him that Bridgette said she’d go after Nicole and either Michelle or Zakiyah. Paul asked if they trust James 200%, to which Paulie said they do. Paul told Paulie that he loves Nicole, but said that she is the strongest girl in the house other than Bridgette. Paul told him that it would be a moment of opportunity if someone were to put Nicole up.
Paul told Paulie that if they leave it down to only guys, there is a chance that they don’t make final two because guys will start to get clipped. Paulie and Paul agreed that they wouldn’t start going after guys until there was a 5-3 advantage.
8:30 PM BBT: Da’Vonne told Michelle that she knows Michelle has her back, but said that she just wants to make sure because she’s likely going to be going up and Bridgette is probably going to use the sympathy card because of her injuries. Da’Vonne asked why Paul was scared of putting Natalie up, to which Michelle said that she didn’t know, but that she sees her flirting with him all the time and it only started once he got HOH.
8:40 PM BBT: Zakiyah told Michelle that Paulie is adamant about getting Da’Vonne out even though she’s told him that Day isn’t after him. Michelle asked who the votes are going to be, but Zakiyah told her that the votes to keep Da’Vonne are likely only going to be them two and James. Zakiyah told Michelle that the boys are only doing what is good for their game, not putting Michelle and Zakiyah’s feelings into consideration. Zakiyah adds that this is going to be the dumbest move of the summer and even dumber on Paul’s part for letting someone control his HOH. Michelle told Zakiyah that she hates how the guys are going behind their back when they used to tell them everything. Michelle adds that Paulie is becoming the new Frank and that it feels like Paul and Victor took their spots in the group.
9:05 PM BBT: Paul told Da’Vonne that if he put up Natalie, she’d cry and freakout, which he said that isn’t something he wants to deal with right now, while he trusts Da’Vonne to not do any of those things. Paul explained that he knows he can trust her and she can trust him, which is why he wants her to be the pawn to ensure that Bridgette goes home.
9:05 PM BBT: Zakiyah told Nicole that the new plan is to nominate Da’Vonne. Nicole told her that she thought Natalie was going up. Zakiyah asked if Nicole would be on board to get Bridgette out, to which Nicole said that she would because she doesn’t want to get anyone mad. Michelle told Nicole that she feels like the guys aren’t telling them anything, but Nicole told her that she doesn’t know if they guys even know anything. Nicole told them that they should all just chill out so that they don’t upset someone before the veto is even used and a replacement nominee is put up. Michelle told Nicole that if Paul lets someone gets into his ear and he backdoors Da’Vonne, that’s bad for his game. Nicole told her that she hasn’t heard anything about that in a while.
9:10 PM BBT: Victor told Paul that he’d put up Zakiyah with Natalie, but Paul told him that he wants a strong girl gone. Victor told him that he’d put up Nicole instead then.
9:20 PM BBT: Michelle told Zakiyah that it seemed like Nicole knew stuff that she wasn’t telling them, which means that she’s likely going to go to tell Corey everything that they just said about the boys.
9:20 PM BBT: Paul told Nicole to tell Da’Vonne if she were to ask what they’re talking about that they’re talking about possible nomination replacements and to tell Da’Vonne that she’s going to be voting Bridgette out no matter what. Nicole told Corey, Paul, and Paulie that Michelle and Zakiyah were saying that the boys are being super sketchy, not telling them anything, and that they both want to keep Bridgette. Nicole explains that they said Bridgette would put them up, while Da’Vonne wouldn’t do that, so they should keep Day. Nicole told them that they have to make the girls think that they’re getting Bridgette out. Corey and Paulie told her that they can just be honest after the veto ceremony and lay out their points.
9:55 PM BBT: Paulie told Michelle that he wouldn’t mind seeing Da’Vonne put up so that they could see what she tells people. Paulie added that he isn’t worried about Bridgette winning future competitions because she’s injured. Paul joins them, telling Michelle that his goal this week is for Bridgette to go home. Michelle says that’s good, that if there is a double eviction next week, it’s going to be a mental HOH competition that Bridgette could win and who knows what who she’d put up because she’s a loose cannon. Paulie told them that they can go out whomever because he doesn’t care which. Michelle told them that if they get Bridgette out now and want to put Da’Vonne up during the double eviction, they have her vote.
11:40 PM BBT: Michelle asked Zakiyah and Nicole if they thought that the guys had something. Zakiyah said that she knows they do, but it just doesn’t involve Victor. Nicole said that she doesn’t think they do. Zakiyah told them that they can have their guy time as long as they know they’re going to have their girl time.
12:55 AM BBT: Zakiyah told Michelle that she’s glad that Paul isn’t actually trying to get Da’Vonne out this week. Zakiyah added that she’s not worried even if she were the one to go up because she said that she trusts their group.
1:15 AM BBT: Zakiyah told Paulie that Paul has other options such as Nicole instead of putting up Da’Vonne. Zakiyah explained that Nicole even volunteered to go up.
2:25 AM BBT: Paul told Paulie that Zakiyah and Michelle are going to be pissed when Bridgette doesn’t go this week. Paulie told him that it’s clear that Da’Vonne, Michelle, and Zakiyah are working closer than they previously thought, which means they could disperse them by getting out Da’Vonne. Paul told Paulie that he’s willing to get out Da’Vonne this week if he promises that they get Bridgette out soon. Paulie said that he’s fine with that. James joined and Paul said that they’ve already tipped the can with Da’Vonne too much now to try to go back.
Paul told Paulie and James that the only two people he’s worried about it Zakiyah and Bridgette. Paulie told him that Da’Vonne would be the person that could unite them. Paul began talking about targeting Nicole, saying that she’d take a shot at one of them because during her season Donny was her best friend but she still put him up. Paul told Paulie that when Nicole is nominated on a Thursday and they have the chance to take her out, they shouldn’t pass up on it. James and Paul told Paulie that he would have to be the person to get Corey’s blessing to go after Nicole.
